Im not sure if Im posing this question in the right place.

Resolved Question:

I'm not sure if I'm posing this question in the right place. If we change our sole-proprietorship from my husband's name to mine, would we be required to get a new tax ID and bascially have to start new?

A change in ownership of a sole proprietorship in the state of Washington requires a new Master Application for business license. See page 8 of the WA Business Tax Guide. (Link below)
